Michelle Vesaas, a Coon Rapids artist, was the winner of the contest. Her design depicts a canoe on a lake and shows Minnesota’s various seasons, reports The Star Tribune.

“My design was inspired by being in the outdoors in this beautiful state through all four seasons,” Vesaas said in a statement. “Even in the coldest days of winter, if you’re dressed for it, there is incredible beauty to be found.”

The plate’s cost starts at $60 that includes a $10 fee for the plate and a $50 contribution to benefit the state’s parks and trails. The plate also gives its users unlimited access to Minnesota state parks.
